Title: CAP Sins: The Phantom Mennonites
Post by: Johnny Unusual on July 21, 2012, 06:38:22 AM
More sins from Lucasfilm.  Bold for ones I liked, italics for "projecting problems at home onto this CAP alert:

Wanton Violence/Crime (W):
orders to kill
eating of animals by animals
child slavery
multiple deaths in a race and in battle
"sword" fighting
exceptionally evil character
Darth Maul being cut in half (non-graphic, no blood/guts)

Impudence/Hate (I)(1):
lies to deflect accountability
a small issue of a little boy's arrogance against mother's authority re: going to bed (sound familiar?)


Sex/Homosexuality (S):
Scant clothing
statue nudity

Drugs/Alcohol (D):
none noted

Offense to God (O)(2):
repeated talk of subservience to gods
calling on a nonholy force for direction, protection, and strength
claim of a virgin birth
foreseeing the future
repeatedly equating "the force" with God's Will and His Control
repeated references to a human as "the chosen one"
levitation/psychokineses

Murder/Suicide (M)(3):
graphic murder by sabre (impalement through body)
murder by Tuskan Raiders shooting racers
